Ski-boots and sunglasses, cashmere and cable cars… Set in the middle of the Italian Dolomites, 150km from Venice, Cortina came of age in the 1950s, a golden age of travel when film stars and other celebrities flocked to the town and the paparazzi cameras flashed. Ernest Hemingway, Elizabeth Taylor, Brigitte Bardot, Frank Sinatra and Audrey Hepburn all made a guest appearance. But it was discovered by the wider world back in the 19th century when it was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The first grand hotels were built and Europe’s high society turned Cortina into a fashionable winter-sports destination. This isn’t a museum piece, though: it’s an evolving destination with a thriving culture and a bright future. With a lively social diary that includes classic car races, ski competitions and fashion shows, Cortina is a year-round destination that will leave you wanting to return over and over again.


As well as the natural drama to be uncovered in the mountains, Cortina has a rich and varied cultural and sporting life. Annual events draw thousands of visitors, with white-knuckle classic car races down mountain roads, record-breaking ski competitions such as the World Cup, and fashion and food taking centre stage.
In 2026, Cortina d’Ampezzo will once again host the Winter Olympics and Paralympics. And there is plenty to do at the Grand Hotel Savoia, with seasonal pop-ups, family activities and dining experiences available at various times of the year.
